How do you open a blocked tear duct on a CALF?

As in most mammals, the tear ducts are located in the medial canthus (inside corner) of the eyes and drain into the nasal cavity. I would strongly recommend having a veterinarian unblock the tear duct, as you can do a lot of damage to the calf if you aren't exactly sure of what you are doing. The veterinarian will probably start from the tear duct and try to gently feed a small size catheter down the nasolacrimal duct, flushing with sterile saline to help move the blockage along. If this doesn't work, the veterinarian can try flushing from the exit point of the nasolacrimal duct (in the nostril) back towards the eye. I will note in a calf it is possible the nasolacrimal duct did not fully form or is congenitally blocked with tissue or a failure of the duct to connect properly. In this case, if you wanted the issue corrected the veterinarian would have to perform surgery to canalize the duct and place it properly - not a cheap option, and probably not one a general practitioner will take on. Depending upon what you want to do with the calf, it may be easier to simply live with the misformed duct and manage the symptoms.

What does a dilated bile duct indicate?

A person who is suffering from this condition certainly does. This could be very serious. It could indicate a blockage in the duct that could be a stone or tumor and needs to be properly investigated. For further information, please refer to a Gastroenterology and liver disease forum.

What type of equipment is used for duct cleaning?

The two main types of equipment used for duct cleaning are Negative Air Duct Cleaning Systems (NADCS) and Rotary Brush Type Systems (RBTS). NADCS usually relies on a huge, powerful vacuum with around 2000-3000 CFM that connects to the duct. The operator will cuts an access hole into the duct line and connects the vacuum. When done properly, the operator will block off areas along the duct with bladders to create a vacuum in sections of the duct. The vacuum then sucks debris back towards the Negative Air Machine. RBTS incorporates a spinning brush that scrubs the ducts and a vacuum that removes the dirt, dust, and debris the brush scrubs off the duct.
